Illustrated with 84 photographs. The cathedrals of Europe were designed, by those who built them, as open books of stone and glass. Prentice states that it was the purpose of both priest and artist that all the people, lettered or unlearned, should be taught wisdom by the churchs art. If, then, we are confused by them, they would be even more perplexed by us, by our inability to understand the things that even the peasant and the child once knew. In this volume, Dr. Prentice presents an engrossing revelation of the carved, glazed and pictured wisdom of the mediaeval world, as those evidences have survived into our own day.

More than that, he has provided an illuminating analysis of the wit and pathos, conscious and unconscious, which distinguished the Gothic centuries through which Western Culture passed. This is a delightful volume linking art and history together in a way that brings new clarity and significance. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
